#060 – POTUS Donald J. Trump

In this episode I speak about the upset (for some), unexpected (for most) victory of President Elect Donald John Trump, who handily defeated Hillary Clinton, the first Woman to be nominated to run by (any major Political Party) the Democratic Party.  Here’s my take on where we are, how we got here and where to go from here.
